Once a student leaves the College he becomes part of an extensive Old Boy network.

Welcome to the Newington College ONU Alumni Community

'To strengthen the bonds between Old Newingtonians and the School’.

This prestigious community consists of many extraordinary and accomplished ONU Alumni worldwide.

Each Newington College student is forever connected by their shared college journey, experiences and purpose of ‘Discovering What’s Possible’ during their formative Newington College years.

Being part of the Newington College Alumni community presents you with the opportunity to access the vast network of your fellow alumni from around the world, build your career connections, share your skills and remain connected to Newington College.
